Where would I find either a topo or guidebook for Kingussie crag and Comic crag?
Kingussie crag is in Highland outcrops. I've got a copy if want a photo of the pages. Is that allowed? Went there once with kids on hol. Was alright. Not heard of comic crag.
I think went to farletter too which had some good routes.
Give us a shout if want a photo of pages. Can't see a topo in the book.
I’ve got Highland Outcrops already but it’s quite an old edition. Not sure if there has been new routes since it was published or not.
Family holiday is why I’m asking too. Can sometimes get away with getting a climb in with the teens if it’s not too much of a walk in or too much faffing trying to find the crag etc
My guide is 1998 edition. Just written description.
Same as mine - apparently more in new edition, so I will buy one.
Try this link, topo forcomic there, not been though so no idea how good/complete it is
Thanks. Rest of crag is apparently inmost recent Highland Outcrops South guidebook, so am now sorted.
Yeah, the latest highland outcrops south has photo topos for the upper tier at Kingussie crag and is very well described. Good venue to keep teens occupied - good routes on decent rock, with easy belay setups on top.
The approach is pretty short and scenic through the woods. You can spice up your adventure by taking the devils staircase up the lower tier (behind the massive pine tree on the approach) with only a minor squeeze at the top, maybe best to pass the rucksack through, cutting back on yourself shortly after this to gain the rocky top of the lower tier. You should pass a few abseil stakes. Classic crack and tennis shoe are two lovely textured slabs and can be accessed by walking along the top and taking the short path at the end.
I havent climbed at Comic Crag but it seems very well equiped and the effort that's gone in to the cleaning is impressive.
In this week's Friday Night Video, we join Kaya Lindsay, Mary Eden, Samantha Mac, and Mercadi Carlson for a skin scraping, gruelling, month-long trip to Vedauwoo, Wyoming. The four of them aim to tick some of the hardest cracks and...
